Learning facilities

The Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (AMU) consists of three faculties and two study and training centres equipped to cover the needs of instruction, research and artistic activity. The school’s main instructional buildings and dormitory are located right in Prague’s historic centre. The resources of all the libraries and other cultural, artistic and informational institutions located in the capital are thus within easy reach.

Information resources are available in faculty libraries and through the AMU computer network everywhere at the faculties, in school-wide facilities and at the dormitory.

The AMU library consists of three faculty libraries which serve as a resource for specialised instruction, and for artistic as well as research activity. In view of the school’s focus, specialised types of documents (printed music, audio-visual documents, etc.) make up more than half of the library’s resources.

AMU’s faculty libraries provide these main services:

  • Off-site and on-site loans (with the option of remote service of a user account)
  • Consultation, reference, research, information
  • Facilities for working with special documents (audio recordings, video projection)
  • Computer rooms for independent work
  • Access to electronic information resources in the field
  • Access to exhibited documents
  • Sales of lecture notes for AMU students
  • User instruction

The electronic catalogues of all libraries are available online.

AMU’s computer centre provides these main services:

  • electronic school information system, personalised remote online access for all students and pedagogues
  • secure school e-mail, as a basic communication means
  • secure, remotely accessible data storage
